“A true gem hidden in Middlebury”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 1 July 2012

A weekend at the Middlebury Inn is worth the price. But, a weekend at this B&B is absolutely priceless!!! I am almost too selfish to post my review as I want to keep this B&B all to myself. All previous comments are "spot-on". For those who are looking for a quiet retreat, or a delicious homemade breakfast with diverse conversation instead of the mundane continental breakfast, and lovely hosts instead of rude waitstaff, this is the place for you. Thanks to Zelia and Gary for a wonderful stay.

Well I have to say I went to Middlebury in order to see the college with my son. At first I was not too sure about the location. However! When we arrived Gary and Zelia were there to make us feel right at home. I had called earlier in the day and let him know we were on our way up from New Jersey. Pleasant ride and beautiful place. We walked up the stair to our room. Absolutely stunning. I have to say the bed and the comforter were so comfortable I wanted to pack it up and bring it home. Gary and Zelia shared with us the restaurants that were in the area for dinner. Dinner was great but breakfast....oh so yum. Great conversation and coffee. Laid back and a perfect spot. Anyone who needs a place to stay. You have found it.

Room Tip: We had the room facing the road and it was perfect. It was a beautiful view in the morning.

Gary and Zelia are delightful hosts and their B&B is uncluttered, comfortable and welcoming. Their home is far enough from the town for quiet, but close enough for a stroll into town if you don't want to drive; and centrally located for anywhere you might want to go. I need to go to Middlebury 3-5 times a year, and thanks to Gary and Zelia and On The Creek I look forward to every trip. Their low-key hospitality and a delicious, generous breakfast round out a lovely experience.

When you go, be sure to plan your trip in advance with their help, if you want to go to local restaurants (reservations are often recommended -- the area food is terrific) or catch a ticketed event on the College campus; or if you are looking for hiking or biking ideas. They are a fount of local knowledge and delighted to help you figure this out.

Room Tip: Both rooms I stayed in are comfortable and quiet. If you like to sit with a good book, though, choos...

We needed a last minute reservation in Middlebury and selected On the Creek based on reviews here. We were not disappointed. The room was very clean and comfortable. The location is convenient to town and the college. The breakfast was organic and delicious. The best part of our brief stay was the hospitality and friendliness of the owners. They made us feel welcome and had great tips about exploring the area. We would stay here again.

Nothing ostentatious but no detail has been overlooked here. Very simple comfort. Wonderful food. The backyard has trees full of apples and pears. A block away is a beautiful old New England covered bridge. We are heading to the farmers market and coop this morning.

Zelia and Gary are a wonderful couple who we found out this morning share our love for Argentina.

I want to reconfirm what all of the other reviewers have said about On the Creek B&B. Gary and Zelia make you feel very comfortable in their clean, simple, and charming B&B. We loved the clean-lined decor, the organic breakfasts, and the comfy bed. We did share a bathroom with another guest but Gary and Zelia have set up a system that made it very comfortable for us. There is also a covered bridge right around the corner. Such a relaxing vacation that we really did not want to leave. If you want stuffy and pretentious, stay somewhere else, If you want the true essense of Vermont, stay here.

We loved that B&B . The rooms and the en-suite bathroom are very comfortable; The beds are excellent. The breakfast on the terrace by their garden ( call it a small park... ) was a real treat, both visually and beacause of the outstanding quality of the food they serve. And Zelia and Gary are such wonderful people, warm, careful and so interesting to talk with! We wish ourselves many happy returns to this wonderful place.
